Read Romans 8:14-17

14Those who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s children. 15For the Spirit that God has given you does not make you slaves and cause you to be afraid; instead, the Spirit makes you God’s children, and by the Spirit’s power we cry out to God, “Father! my Father!” 16God’s Spirit joins himself to our spirits to declare that we are God’s children. 17Since we are his children, we will possess the blessings he keeps for his people, and we will also possess with Christ what God has kept for him; for if we share Christ’s suffering, we will also share his glory.


"The Spirit makes you God's children." - Verse 15
Verse 16 is also a beautiful picture of intimacy with God: "God's Spirit joins himself to our spirits..."


Lord I often forget that you are here - in me - with me.  Your are not far away.
